More Changes Afoot at KDE


Quote:
It's been a real hub of activity over there at the KDE camp this week. First, they announced the release of KDE 4.11.1 bug fix and stabilization update on September 3. Then, on September 4 Howard Chan blogged about the new refined KDE release structure. And, as if that wasn't enough excitement for one week, Carl Symons announced the release of Plasma Active 4 today. All this makes one wonder what tomorrow will bring.

KDE 4.11.1 Released

Jos Poortvliet, openSUSE community manager, announced the September monthly updates to KDE 4.11. He said KDE 4.11.1 received over 70 bugfixes including "improvements to the Window Manager KWin, the file manager Dolphin, and others." He also said users can expect the desktop to start up faster, Dolphin to scroll smoother, and overall less memory use. Poortvliet continued, "Improvements include the return of drag-and-drop from taskbar to pager, highlighting and color fixes in Kate and MANY little bugs squashed in the Kmahjongg game. There are many stability fixes and the usual additions of translations." See his post or the official announcement for more.

KDE Release Structure Refinement

Howard Chan starts by remind users that Plasma Workspaces 4 is in maintenance mode as developers have moved on to what I refer to as KDE 5 with Qt 5. KDE had been discussing a three month release schedule for major releases, but Chan's September 4 post muddies the waters a bit. He said, "With the upcoming Frameworks 5, the KDE Release Team will decouple the release cycles of Workspaces, Applications and Platform. While Applications will have more releases in the 4.x series, the Plasma Workspaces team has decided to focus on Workspaces 2. The recently released 4.11 version of Plasma Workspaces will have Long Term Support. Meanwhile, work on Frameworks 5 is progressing, making KDE technologies ready for the future." (If you're still confused, try Rob Zwetsloot's interpretation.)

After a full explanation of terms and conditions, Chan posted the following schedule:
